Farming for Five Generations in Frederick, MD
We know how hard it is to work the long, laborious hours of a farming operation on top of maintaining work off the farm, that’s why we’re proud to introduce you to the Crum family in our most recent issue of the Leader!
For Jason Crum and his wife, Mary, purchasing land to farm and raise calves and heifers was an easy choice. Growing up working on the land his great, great grandfather purchased for farming, Jason helped his parents with their dairy operation. Today, the couple farms outside of his construction business and her job as a vocational coordinator for developmentally disabled adults, all while raising their two children, Tristen and Liliana. The children also enjoy helping out on the farm with feeding the calves, playing with the family’s border collie puppies, and harvesting the crops.
Farm Credit loan officer, Mary Jane Roop, has worked with the family for 10 years helping them obtain a portion of their financing through the Frederick County Critical Farms Program.
